Major banking groups band together
As banks continue to set up initiatives on the company level, they are also collaborating on ambitious projects.
For example, HandiFormaBanques is an interbank association (law of 1901) created in June 2007, which brings together the Centre de formation de la profession bancaire (CFPB), BNP Paribas, HSBC France, LCL, Société Générale and Crédit du Nord. Its mission is : to promote training and professional integration for people with disabilities.
Frequently using work-study training programs, the initiative has already led to more than 600 recruiting operations across France. It also boasts a 60% workforce re-entry rate for those taking part in the program.
